    Big Ten Tournament Thread

    Tournament starts tomorrow, weather permitting. Iowa faces off against PSU tomorrow in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. Iowa is considered to be a bubble team for the NCAA regional tournament so every win is going to be huge. Iowa will send Mazur to the mound for game 1, PSU sends...

    Hawkeyes vs Indiana Final Series Thread

    This is it, final games of the regular season and game 1 is TONIGHT. Instead of the usual Friday, Saturday, Sunday games they are starting Thursday and this is probably so teams can reset their pitchers for the conference tournament that starts next Wednesday. Iowa still has a lot to play for...

    Hawkeyes at Michigan State Series Thread

    This is going to be simple, I’ve been out of the country all week and fly home today. Tonight starts the final Big Ten road series for Iowa. Iowa is ranked 73rd on the RPI, they really could use a series sweep to improve their shot at an at large bid into the regionals. Tonights game starts...

    Hawkeyes vs Boilermakers Series Thread

    I know I keep calling every game and series "must win", it's true as Iowa is squarely on the NCAA Regionals bubble. Iowa hosts the 25-14 (6-7 Conf) Purdue Boilermakers for a 3 game series. At one time Purdue was ranked in the top 25 and since they have a winning record it will be a RPI boost...

    Iowa vs Illinois State Midweek Game

    Illinois State comes into Duane Banks Field with a 17-22 record tonight to face the 26-14 Hawkeyes. Their record is deceiving as ISU does own wins over Arkansas, Purdue, Illinois, and Dallas Baptist. I hate calling this game a "must win" but since Iowa is on the bubble to reach the Regionals...

    Hawkeyes at Nebraska Series Thread

    I probably say this in every thread but this is another huge series for the Hawkeyes, everyone probably will since Iowa is a bubble team for the regionals. Coming into this season Nebraska was a favorite pick to win the Big Ten, instead they come into this game with a 17-23 overall record and...

    Iowa vs Western Illinois Midweek Game

    Next up for Iowa is a home game against the mighty Leathernecks. The Leathernecks come into this game with a 4-32 record and haven't won a game since April 9th. Their starting pitcher has an ERA over 12. I know Western Illinois is a fairly close opponent (just a 2 hour bus ride) but I hope...

    Hawkeyes at Milwaukee Mid Week Game

    Iowa goes on the road for this one and they really could use a win after dropping 2 of 3 to the Illini last weekend. The Panthers are 11-13 and on a 3 game losing streak. Iowa will have Connor Schultz on the mound for his 3rd start of the season. Game will be streamed live on ESPN+ if you are...

    Hawkeyes Update RPI

    We are getting to a point in the season where this is starting to matter. College baseball still uses the RPI system when determining who makes the NCAA regionals as an at large team. This team has an outside shot at reaching the regionals as an at large team but it will take some work...
